The Singapore Grand Prix organisers are asking fans to come up with names for three of the corners on the Marina Bay circuit.

The circuit’s website says:

Readers are invited to send in their suggestions from now until February 28 to win attractive prizes. Three lucky winners will each receive a three-day 2009 FORMULA 1?? SingTel Singapore Grand Prix [ticket] for the grandstand closest to the turn they?ve named, as well as a pit lane tour. The best overall contributor will also get a two-night stay in a five-star trackside hotel.

It wants names that are no longer than three words, have a local flavour and include the word ‘turn’ or ‘corner’.

What do you think would be good names for the corners? Post your suggestions below – and don’t forget to enter the competition!

  1. I quite like the idea, rather than celebrating the greats of the sport like Senna, Prost, Schumacher etc., we celebrate the famous (infamous) duffers via corner names.

    So I present Turn Jean-Denis Deletraz, Turn Ricardo Rosset and Turn Yuji Ide. Beside the Andrea Moda Grandstand.

  2. “The Badger Bends” ….guess I would say that!

    As long as they don’t name another lame corner after the great Ayrton Senna that’s fine.

    ‘the singapore sling’ or ‘sling turn’ – both a bit naff but you can see where i’m going with the cocktail idea, first thing that comes to my head when someone says Singapore (after F1, nightrace, ferrari pit stops of course!)

  3. There’s plenty of names available for these corners, especially if inspired by the colonial elements of the old part of town (near Turn 10). The track as it is (and I drive on these roads almost daily, in the correct traffic direction) is too Mickey Mouse for road cars, let alone F1…

  4. Name them after the 3 Singaporians that won the Past Grand Prix in Singapore.
    Yong Nam Kee/Lee Han Seng/Rodney Seow, alternatively by their nick names Fatso/Champ/Buzzer

  5. Hi, i would suggest:

    Historical Moment:
    “The Jackson Plan Turn”
    “The Stamford Raffles”
    “The 909 Turn”

    Funny Name:
    “The Shiok Turn”
    “The PCK Turn”
    “The ABC turn”
